Establishment history In 1926 the Research and Study Society of Azerbaijan (investigations in a filed of geology and geophysics) was established.

In 1932 Azerbaijan subdivision of Transcaucasian branch of Academy of sciences of USSR (AzSTBAS) (study of natural resources of Azerbaijan) was established on the basis of this society.

In 1935 AzSTBAS was reorganized to Azerbaijani branch of Academy of Sciences of USSR (ABAS USSR) with a number of institutions, including geology sector.

In 1938 The geology sector was reformed into an independent research institution – Geology Institute - on initiative of great scientists – Sh.A. Azizbekov, M.A.Gashkay, A.A.Yakubov and The Academy of Sciences of the USSR. (Official history of the Geology İnstitute)

In 2003 the Geology Institute of ANAS was established on the basis of the Geology Institute and the Institute of problems of deep oil-gas fields (IPDOGF).

In 2014 According to the resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Azerbaijan Republic (№ 104, April 15, 2014) the Geology Institute was renamed into the Institute of Geology and Geophysics of ANAS.

Basic activity directions  Study of the evolution of sedimentary basins and the formation of hydrocarbons at great depths. Study of catastrophic processes of natural and anthropogenic origin, prediction of geological hazards and the establishment of monitoring systems. Development of scientific basis for environmental management, environmental evolution and research on the development of a new approach methodology for solving problems of analysis of oil and gas fields development.
Main scientific achievements  On the basis of 3h-dimensional modeling evolution of thermal conditions, oil and gas formation sites in space and time was reproduced; reservoir characteristics and phase state of fluids were estimated. The features of various forms of hydrocarbon migration, covering the whole cycle of their ontogenesis in relation to the geological conditions of the South Caspian basin (SCB) were considered.

Spatial nonuniformity of conditions of hydrocarbon migration from source rocks was established, the presence of power sites of structures by hydrocarbons of underlying sediments was revealed, range of subvertical migration of oil and gas was estimated.

Geothermal energy resources of the Pliocene-Quaternary deposits of Azerbaijan depression zones were estimated. New data on deformation processes was obtained by GPS monitoring and geodynamic studies.

As a result of microtremor measurements with using seismic system GURALP the distribution of resonance frequencies, gain factor for soil, point increment for major earthquake was determined.

Atlas of mud volcanoes was pubıished
